Close to heaven

Losing someone is never easy, and it hurts to think about all of the amazing people that moved up to Heaven. All the faces you won’t see again, the laughters you won’t hear, the hugs you won’t give. Grief sucks, and I wish I could say something inspiring, something intelligent, something that would ease the pain… but I don’t have the answer in me.

I only know that heavens have been collecting some pretty awesome people. And that for those of us who are still here we gotta make the best of it. I wrote about this a couple of times (here, here and here). I guess those events reminds us what truly matters and that everyday is an opportunity to put our values to work.


Losses are only devastating when you think they’re permanent. They never are. – Mike Dooley
